're going to do. i will be calling harry reid's office tomorrow to ask and to change the filibuster rule. we have to make the move. i agree. i understand ipoem. -- the poem. it was beautiful. >> you are on. welcome. caller: i just want to comment that i find it very revealing that secretary clinton is trying to avoid the benghazi scandal and had on new glasses but not answered one question about how many americans were killed in benghazi. host: i am so incredibly happy right now and so grateful for all that obama has laid out for his second term. we are following tweets. you are welcome to join the conversation. >> i really was and pressed by the whole inauguration. i was able to watch the first one. probably early this morning. i thought it was really professional. the politicians, i wish they would get together like that when it is time to change lolls and improve the stability of this country. i was impressed overall, especially with kelly clarkson and the beyonce. they were impressive with their music. i listened to them sparingly no when they have a couple of hits. i wish to put up more
on this, on the floor of the united states senate, but i don't think that senator harry reid even brings it to the senate floor because he has six democrats up for election in two years in states were the president received fewer than 42% of the votes. and he doesn't want his democrats to have to choose between their own constituents and the president's positions. >> what about immigration? seems too me that is something in the interest of the republican party that you-all would like to see get passed, some kind of immigration reform. will that happen this year? >> i mean, i'm child of immigrants. that is the history of this country. immigration is good and important for our country. legal immigration needs to really be modernized. marco rubio is working on that we need to find ways. we are educating so many people and then telling them to leave the country who are from other countries, go back, with he don't want you here. we have issues of labor that we need additional labor. we need to deal with immigration and i think we will, candy. >> quickly, you're on the committee that will list
. what has harry reid rand democrats done in the senate? absolutely nothing. how many days since they passed a budget? >> 1,357. >> 1,357 days since democrats have passed a budget in the united states senate. >> let's talk about that lack of leadership so many people have criticized the president for not reaching out and being a leader and bringing in republicans to really get to know them on every level so they can perhaps negotiate a deal. president obama took a moment to address the criticism within the beltway he hasn't spend enough time developing personal relationships with members of cog. >> most people who know me know i'm a pretty friend lip guy and i like a good party. personal relationships are important and obviously, i can always do a better job. the nice thing is now that my girls are getting older, they don't want to spend that much time with me anyway. i'll be probably calling around looking for somebody to play cards with me or something because i'm getting kind of lonely in this big house. >> a quick search, just for the record, shows over the president's first
me so much. can we get a resolution to the issue? lou: do you agree? fire harry reid and the democratic leadership that failed to pass a budget? almost four years? >> well, i -- that's going to happen. president obama spent the first four year i trying to get along with the republicans. they wouldn't do it. he's back in office, and leading up until yesterday, refused to cooperate. he drew the line in the sand, and, you know, it started to work. republicans came to the senses, okay, not touching the debt ceiling, let it float. in return, you see the democrats in the senate drawing up a budget. i think obama's -- his olive branch is, okay, i'll take this one extension to bring stability to the situation, but it's not happening again because we have to get the job doab. it's progress. it's better than the last few months. lou: some combative about it and characterize the president as being so contentious. it's the first intelligent step taken by the republicans and gives, you know, i i think hope to the nation, the first intelligent step taken by the president. they actu
on inside that inaugural luncheon where the president is sitting down with harry reid and john boehner and talking with evan bahy over the weekend, i'm sure they took the sharp objects off the table and have a food taster. and one said, don't worry, my vice chair lamar alexander will be sitting between them to make sure things are civil. all joking aside, they thought this is going to be a good luncheon and everybody will be professional and the big battles of course, will come tomorrow. and don't forget that hillary clinton is also, secretary of state going to be testifying on benghazi on wednesday. that will be another big event that happens here on capitol hill. now, to the parade, we can pan off just a little bit and you can see that some folks have gathered here at the beginning of the parade, quite a bit different than it was at least at this point from 2009, where people were 20, 30 deep along the parade route. we'll probably see that, and looks like people, five, six people deep headed down constitution avenue. we make the turn on to pennsylvania avenue and then a slow crawl up
leader harry reid will present colleagues with options for reforming the senate blockbuster rules in the meetings today. another reporter says the majority leader signals he will push ahead with a supplemental spending package on hurricane sandy, the $50.5 billion supplemental package from last fall. is one of the holdovers from the 112th congress. harry reid will need unanimous consent from a publicans. watch the senate on c-span2. on c-span3, the inaugural prayer service. we take you live now to the house floor on c-span. the speaker: the house will be in order. the prayer will be offered by our chaplain, father conroy. chaplain conroy: let us pray. thank you fwod for giving us another -- god for giving us another day. the people's house gathers today after a day of celebrating the greatness of our american experiment of self-government, and as the administration gathers for a prayer even now at the national cathedral, we gather here. -- here to ask your blessing. the difficult work of governing now resumes. bless the members of this assembly with wisdom, patience, and good will
. naacp head just arrived. we saw harry reid probably going into chambers back there. they haven't started arriving yet. the governors apparently were just announced. they're starting to filter in and take their seats. this is a really exciting part of being an elected official is sitting up there. >> senator al franken. >> jennifer: you can see richard blumenthal from connecticut. john kerry of course. carl levin. >> john: a few moments ago, speaker of the house john boehner entered, the most tan man in washington, d.c. in january. john mccain. >> jennifer: john mccain talking with dianne feinstein, i'm sure about gun control. cutting a deal right there. >> john: it is rather unseasonably warm today. i'm thankful for that for the folks who are there. >> jennifer: tammy baldwin. >> john: yesterday i was shocked at how warm it was. a lot of folks were expressing confusion as to why the president was sworn in yesterday. the constitution requires, of course, the president be sworn in on january 20th. since federal buildings and courthouses are closed on sunday, the ceremony is still scheduled
's time for the senate to lead. on climate change, let harry reid to see if they can do something. it's their turn. let the senate pass a budget. on guns, i'd be interested to see if they can pass a an obama-style coalition to do what the president is asking for. that's a big change. the house, one of the things they need to do smarter is not see a plank and swim with sharks. let harry reid lead and see what they can do. i think the president will have a lot fewer followers than he thinks. >> harry reid is as able senate leader. i love seeing him lead. it's interesting that ari is counseling at least on tv counseling republicans not to lead. look, that's easy for the republicans. they used to say -- ari and i are both baseball fans. the house controlled by the republicans are where good ideas go to die and that's apparently what speaker boehner is being advised to do now. i think it's a terrible mistake. he could come and make deals and meet the president halfway but it looks like i think they are going to go back to their constructionism. that's not a good strategy. >> all right. we'
, the senate majority leader harry reid didn't fully embrace the house plan. he also didn't say no either. but over at the white house, well, they are saying the president would sign it. >> the bill still has to overcome some concerns expressed by members of the house and the senate before it can pass both chambers and reach the president's desk. if it does, and it reaches the president's desk, he would not stand in the way of the bill becoming law. >> if the president is not going to block it that would seem to add pressure on senator reid to take it up and act on it and that may force a budget to get done before long. shep? >> shepard: see what happens. mike emanuel on capitol hill. thanks. a good day for your 401 k. the dow and s&p 500 both closed at five year high. while the nasdaq went up 8 points. it's the seventh time the s&p has closed at a five year high just this year. hopes that congress will raise that debt ceiling and some really better than expected earnings reports helped fuel the gains today. google beat analyst's expectations and that helped push its shares up about 5% in
% of senate democrats are either have an a or b rating from the n.r.a., including harry reid. you have seven-- >> that's what they're trying to get at right now. the president obama right now for president obama he can't get the senate democrats to sign on to his legislation and groups that support president obama's gun control push are putting out ads like this on democrats. >> and shows you the president having a moment to unify the country after a horrific tragedy and you and i have talked about it in the past, in an effective way people are at the table saying comprehensive reform and let's discuss all things that will make our children and society safer and the president comes up with a plan not even members of his own party can support. i don't think that's the kinds of divisive leadership-- >> tony, you say members of his own party don't support this. the vast majority of members do. yes, are there democrats beholden to the gun lobby. >> megyn: let him finish. >> there are a ton of democrats, not a ton, but small set of democrats beholden to the influence of the gun lobby and that's w
john boehner, harry reid, house majority leader eric cantor and house democratic leader nancy pelosi. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ >>> everyone is listening to the marine band, the president's own. we have been blessed, we should point out, with today's weather. we're losing the sun a little bit. there's a light cloud cover that just now chose to move in over capitol hill and continuation of that may bring us some snow showers. but it's a bright day and it's so much warmer than last year. last year, we woke up, it was 19 degrees. and by the time the president was taking the oath, i believe it goes to a balmy 28, winds at 13 gusting to 23 if memory serves. and today it's just much more comfortable. and you think to think for all the folks on foot moving around this city, some of whom have traveled great distances to be here. it's just much more comfortable. and someone pointed out a few flurries in the air would make a beautiful television picture later today, mike i can't tellal beschloss. >> maybe we can arrange that. as long as we're talking about weather, ronald reagan had the distinction of t
-style assault weapons. but harry reid, a gun owner himself, does not think a ban will pass congress. so instead of putting together a bill with multiple layers, it's likely they will hold a vote on individual elements of the president's plan. >> the numbers around the country, most people favor having the ability to dairy -- carry guns. the american people want us to be very carb just what we do. >> reporter: president obama knows he needs to win over members of his own party before he can target his own party. >>> an unusual proposal to regulate assault weapons in san jose is getting mixed reviews. a lawyer in san jose drafted and ordinance and presented it at a city council committee meeting yesterday. it calls for anyone in san jose who wants to own an assault weapon to be required to pass a mental health check and then turn the weapon over to police for safe keeping. if owners want to check out their weapons, they would have to say why. >>> san jose mayor chuck reed said he's not hour it's a good idea for cities to make their own gun laws while the president is taking this on as a federal -
just mentioned, martha, it has been almost four years since harry reid and the democrats have passed a budget. i think there is a larger point here. everybody in washington, especially the democrats, are celebrating the republicans blinked here and there is no question they blinked in the showdown with the president and are giving him another three-month debt extension. you know the real problem and i just want to make this point, the problem isn't whether we are going to have a debt limit showdown, the problem is that we are borrowing $16.4 trillion. all we are doing here, martha to be realistic about it is we are saying, coach doing what you're doing, we are going to keep borrowing at the same pace. this is not a solution. martha: matt, i look at this i feel like every time there is a so-called deadline we all know that the deadlines are so squishy and congress always figures out some way not to have to feel with the deadline and live in the real world and get the work done. i think people are sick to death of this. >> we've almost become numb to it i think. last year when this was
